Time for Some Pirate History:

Alright guys here are some Thumbs for my first assignment in C.F. Paynes class. He told me to do a historically accurate pirate book cover for any Real pirate in history. I picked Black beard! These are the thumbs that made the cut out of 23 total. Let me know which gets your vote. I think I am favoring the one with everyone in the captains quarters...That one would have moon light to the left and lamp light on the right. Sounds like fun to me...Those other two would be Black beard being epic up on the deck, and the fourth is the crew coming back from burying the loot. I may change that to being them leaving the ship to go to the island, I have yet to decide.

Little Doodle...

This is just something I drew and thought I would throw some color on. Normally when I work with paint it is Acrylics, so it would seem I got a bit trigger happy with the water. Some where along the line i thought this needed a wash over the whole thing and I ended up making the whole thing blurry... The good news is that I am in Watercolor class now so i should get the practice i need to not make any more stupid last minute mistakes. haha.

I really need some assignments from school to get things going again. I have been waiting for the homework to kick in so I have been holding off on starting anything for fun, so now I am just feeling bored. I need to get things started here! and I really need to start sketching more again.

Finished Knight

I will be the first to say that this is not really one of my best pieces. BUT I will say that I learned a bit about the technique I was attempting. I figured I would go ahead and post it anyway. A special thanks to Justin Gerard. I did this piece for fun after seeing an amazing piece he worked on last year. Though I totally failed haha. I feel like i have learned something.

A Knight and His Steed

This is something that I have hatched after poring through my collection of pieces by my favorite illustrators. Something of a traveling knight trudging through the woods. If this ever gets developed further, It would be N.C. Wyeth influenced. One of my favorite artists of all the greats.

Alright boys and girls, after all your patience It is finally finished haha. This took a bit longer then it would ever normally, but with no deadline sometimes its hard to make yourself get through something personal. I'm sure you guys know what I'm talking about. In the end this went into the digital realm, but I got the result i wanted so i'm not unhappy. I'v more cooking so I'll be sure to get on them tomorrow.
